build to the u.s. via the rails. >> all aboard! >> yep. mexico's probably the cheapest place on earth to make stuff to send stuff to the united states. and speaking of the rails, the best way to play this theme is with my new favorite railroad stock kansas city southern, ksu. at a time when many rails are struggling, kansas city southern is thriving, stock at $77 and change, just $6 off its highs. why, oh, why do i like this company so much? simple. geography. take a look at this map of the company's rail network, okay? kansas city southern is the new intercontinental railroad. except unlike the one you studied in school, it runs from north to south instead of east to west. it has 6,600-mile network, it's pretty much evenly divided between the united states and mexico and the network is only one interchange away from every single major market in north america. believe me when i tell you, this area is just booming. i go down there a lot and i cannot believe how strong it is. kansas city southern got into mexico in 1996 when the company won the option to privatize the mexican national r
